I've posted under the health section because my hair is newly damaged and I don't know what to do. I have coarse, frizzy, type 3b hair that never really had curl definition because I never learned how, but it was pretty. I've been hot iron straightening for about 10 years and highlighting longer than that.

Of course I'm going to stop using all heat, but I just don't want to give up the color! I was blond as a kid and it turned dishwater blond as I got older then dishwater brown. So, most of my friends know me as a dark blonde now with brown going through it - done by a salon always. And now that I am gray, there is no way I would give up coloring that. It is damaged, I know, but can I continue coloring it while I do all the things to fix the damage?
